A masterpiece of Gothic architecture, the foundation stones for St Mary's Cathedral were laid by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1821. The cathedral finally opened in 1900, although work continued until 1928 and really only recently finished. Wardell's original design had two spires that were never built. After ten years' debate and political fund-raising, the twin spires were finally completed in 2000. It is one of the most beautiful monuments in Sydney city and surely worth a visit.
